No. 9 Medium Writing Board

The Writing Board is a Colonel favorite. “I made the first Writing Board for my personal use and still use it every day. If you’re like me and work from a chair more often than at a desk . . . if thoughts and ideas come to you more easily when committed first to pen and paper . . . if you understand the power of a hand-written letter or note; you’re going to love the Writing Board,”

– Colonel Littleton

It’s great for letters, cards, notes, designing, planning and as a support for books and some tech gear (holds 12.9” iPad Pro with outside dimensions of 11”T x 8 ½”W and smaller tablets).

  1. Beautiful craftsmanship and the No. 9 is perfect to keep with me at all times! Worth every penny!!!!


  2. I received my first writing board from my wife as a birthday gift, to help motivate my inspiration to start writing. And it has done just that! It is beautiful, I especially love the leather trim at the bottom! It has seen great use since January, so much so that I now have a well stocked supply of replacement pads of paper.


  3. The craftsmanship is superb and the usefulness unmatched. It helps me slow things down, draw out more practical thinking, and add calm in the face of the unending high-tech mania and crazy headlines. Thanks, Colonel!

  4. The [medium] writing board is wonderful! It’s about the size of a regular clipboard and serves a similar purpose, but that’s where the comparison ends. This elevates the concept to a stratospheric level. The touches of brass and leather give a rustic-yet-refined look and feel, and it just plain old feels good in your hands or on your lap. It makes work a pleasure, and and correspondence a delight! Bonus points for the fantastic packaging and presentation. Highly recommended.


  5. Excellent joinery, fine craftsmanship, leather, metal and woodwork. Also a beautiful presentation when shipped. I’m writing a lot of letters these days, and I like how light the board is on my knee and how it compliments my wood fountain pen perfectly. The slots on the two screws on the brass nameplate were a bit sharp and rough, but a touch with a file made all well. Nice job Colonel and Co!

  7. I purchased the no.10 board, fell in love. Decided to order the No.9. It’s a beautiful product. What’s more is the company. Generous and personable. Everything you had always wanted from your favorite business. Loved the leather cleaner, and the coaster, and always the moonpies! And thanks for the extra addition on the board.

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
